Sunday market is back!

The Docklands Sunday Market returned to NewQuay Promenade with great success on May 24 as a refreshed Farmers Market.

With the usual craft market closed since March until further notice as a result of COVID-19, the market’s director Eileen Fiederling relaunched the market with 11 fresh food stallholders last month and received a great response from locals.

“It was very good. We had so many locals coming back to us welcoming us back,” Fiederling said.

“We were very pleased with the result and the response was very good, especially from the locals. There was more activity then there had been in the previous months, which was great for the area.”

Docklands Chamber of Commerce (DCC) executive officer Shane Wylie congratulated the market on quickly adapting to the new world, with City of Melbourne pedestrian counters having shown average 2019 Sunday numbers for NewQuay on the day.

Among the 11 stallholders present on the day, a fresh variety of fruit and vegetables, breads, cheeses, coffees and nuts were available and Eileen said management was in negotiations to have even more for the next market day on June 28.

“A great market in a beautiful location ... everybody come along and support your local farmers!” she said.
